There’s nothing else quite like the feeling you get when you are home after a long vacation. đŸ™‚

We had a blast in Michigan with the entire family…but there’s always that deep need to be home, in your own bed, or even snuggled on your own broken-in couch.  The ride from Michigan took us eleven hours this time, but we’ve returned to West "By God" Virginia safe and sound and are looking forward to 2009.
A huge thanks is needed to be sent to Billy, Sierra, Nick and Nicole for all the hospitality while we were there.  Basically: Thanks for putting up with us, guys! 
Now that the holidays are said and done, Bennett and I can start really getting the details all worked out for the wedding.  In case you haven’t thought about how soon our big day is in comparison to today….it’s just over 5 months!!  If this years goes by even remotely as quickly as last year did, 5 months will feel more like 5 weeks.
